On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a quick thought on how COVID-19, or more specifically, the health and safety protocols brought upon by COVID-19, is taking over sports for the second year in a row. Whether it's Cam Newton possibly losing his job in New England because he wasn't vaccinated or Urban Meyer saying the Jacksonville Jaguars considered vaccination status when deciding on their Final 53, it seems as thought every single day we have a new COVID-related headline in the world of sports. Later, EstablishTheRun.com founder and fantasy football analyst Evan Silva swings by to discuss how gambling and fantasy are so intertwined, why the Chicago Bears defense could give up big numbers to opposing wide receivers, why he expects Calvin Ridley to have a stellar season for the Atlanta Falcons, the dreaded 'Talent vs. Volume' debate in fantasy football, how the JK Dobbins injury impacts the Baltimore Ravens backfield, which rookie running back could become a league winner for you in the second half of the season, why he's lower on Saquon Barkley than at least one of his colleagues, why the decision to dump Cam Newton and start Mac Jones actually boosts the upside of every single New England Patriots skill position player, why it's hard not to be concerned about the availability of unvaccinated players like Lamar Jackson and Kirk Cousins from both a gambling and fantasy perspective, and much more!
